Gas entrepreneur Angus Karoll and wife Sonia have purchased Goodsall House, the 1920s Professor Leslie Wilkinson designed home in Bellevue Hill.

They quietly secured the Victoria Road home for $9.1 million after it had been expected to fetch around $10.5 million. 

Wilkinson was commissioned in 1929 to design the alterations and additions to the bungalow which included a lower ground level.

It is now a six bedroom, five bathroom home privately set amid 1,070 sqm of exotic gardens.

Ray White agent Elliott Placks sold the home to the couple who are the third owners in three years.

Architect Nick Tobias and author wife Miranda Darling paid $6,765,250 for the home in 2006.

They sold the home for $9 million in 2015 to former Man Investments Australia chief executive Jamie Douglas and wife Heather, the current vendors.

Angus and Sonia have just pocketed nearly $11 million from the sale of their 1850s Darling Point apartments known as Prudhoe.

Ray White Double Bay agents Elliott Placks and Ashley Bierman negotiated the deal.

Karoll secured development approval to add a fourth floor to Prudhoe designed by architect Michael Suttor.
